Elgato HD60 S+ packs 4K60 HDR10 passthrough for $200

What you need to know

  • Elgato launched the new HD60 S+ today.
  • The capture card allows you to stream HDR gameplay at 1080p and 60 frames per second with 4K60 HDR passthrough to your TV.
  • The HD60 S+ is available for $200 now at Elgato.

Elgato introduced its latest game capture device, the HD60 S+, today with a significant upgrade over the previous HD60 S. The new capture card comes with 4K60 HDR passthrough, meaning you can play your games in their full quality on your TV while streaming or capturing footage at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

That's a major upgrade for streamers and creators who want to capture footage for videos. While the 1080p60 capture is on par with the previous version of the device, 4K60 HDR passthrough means you won't have to compromise the quality of the gameplay on your TV while you're capturing footage.

Otherwise, the HD60 S+ very much captures what made the previous HD60 S a solid capture device. It's plug-and-play, so you can hook up your game console and computer to get started recording or streaming right away. The device also works with streaming tools like OBS Studio, Streamlabs OBS, and XSplit out of the box.

Elgato is also touting extremely low latency between the capture feed and actual gameplay, so you should see the action unfold on your capture simultaneously as it occurs on your TV.

The Elgato HD60 S+ is available to pick up for $200 now at Elgato's web store. Presumably, like the HD60 S, it will become available from other retailers like Amazon at a later date.
